Just spent a few days in Stratford-on-Avon but couldn't find any folk club there. I suppose I should have made enquires before going. However, as I may well be going back, does anyone know of a folk club in or very near to Stratford? I did manage to find the Pen & Parchment which serves Theakstons on draught and has a good pub quiz on a Sunday.......

Stratford pubs are mostly far too interested in ripping off tourists. There's no money to be made from folkies here.

There are quite a few sessions/sings in the surrounding villages, but if you want to pay at the door, to see a booked artist, you'd have to try Coventry, Warwick, Redditch, Banbury etc.

Agree with Arnie! I noticed a few mentions of Jazz when I was there recently but didn't explore as I usually find it ain't what I call jazz, but no folk at all!
Come on Stratford, sort it out before we come again!

Cox's Yard books live acts - recent turns have included Lindisfarne, Wishbone Ash, Meet on the Ledge, Benjy Kirkpatrick and Seth Lakeman as well as local punk bands.

White Swan Hotel has been running (modernish) jazz on Sunday evenings for over 20 years.

Pen & Parchment had blues on Monday evenings last year - may still do so.

Real DIY folk - fageddaboudit. Stratford is about taking your money, making you a passive payer, not about letting you do anything for yourself.

Try the Harbury folk club (in the Shakespeare), first Thursday of the month, about 10 miles outside Stratford. or the Warwick club every Friday in the Warwick Arms.

Hi there Arnie.
I agree what my dear mate Snuffy, says. I live in Stratford-upon-Avon - its a nice place but its not for folk clubs.
What are you looking for? The more formal clubs are available in Warwick, Harbury and Banbury, no more than half an hour's drive away. But there are also singarounds, music sessions and mixtures (which work!) only short drives away. Give me a bit of notice by PM-ing me in advance of your next visit and I will give you personal suggestions about what is going on during your stay.
As the founder Chairman of the Shakespeare Branch of CAMRA, I can also say that the ale is expensive in the town of S-u-A. I tend to drink in certain villages nearby, some of which have regular music/song sessions!
"Dancing and singing ...!"
Alan

Hi there everyone

I run the NEW Stratford Folk Club here in the wonderful town Stratford Upon Avon. We do the first Wednesday of the month, acoustic sessions and the last Friday of the month Concert Nights. Here's the Website and have a look what's on: www.stratforduponavonfolkclub.co.uk

Hope to see you there soon

Tori

when all else fails there is always cresby.com and you would be amazed that there are other things in the area, and other websites linked therefrom, run by more local Folkies.
If GUEST Tori would like to contact me from there I will updated details, like the datestamp and other details that think should be included.

folk happenings within 20 km of Stratford FC choose a town for other locations. Area covered is roughly SW of England & SE Wales eg Shrewsbury to Exeter & Wallingford to Cardiff

Information also on www.uksessions.net

The session at the Shakespeare, Welford on Avon (2nd. Sunday) is no more as the pub has closed. There will be a session somewhere, probably the Blue Boar, Temple Grafton, but there is a phone contact in the listings

Hi Tori, can you tell us what is meant by 'acoustic sessions' in this context, please?

I understand the acoustic bit, but I would understand a session to be communal intsrumental tune playing- where on your website it says: "our host, home-grown Stratford musician Tori Rushton will introduce local singers and performers" which sounds more like a singaround.

I'm happy with either, but may be more likely to travel if I know what to expect.

Thanks,

Noreen
